Search me, O God, and know my heart today. Try me, O Savior, know my thoughts, I pray. See if there be some wicked way in me; Cleanse me from ev’ry sin, and set me free.2. I praise Thee, Lord, for cleansing me from sin; Fulfill Thy Word, and make me pure within. Fill me with fire, where once I burned with shame; Grant my desire to magnify Thy name.3. Lord, take my life, and make it wholly Thine: Fill all my heart with Thy great love divine. Take all my will, my passion, self and pride; I now surrender, Lord, in me abide.
